Smashwords Interview

Which came first? The story idea or the Title?
The story idea came first. I’ve been writing for years and am an avid reader, a number of short stories that I had been working on simply merged into one another to provide the bones of an idea. It was my husband who said I should write about Mauritius and I found it to be therapeutic way of keeping that part of my life alive and real. The story itself kept drawing me back into the sugar cane, it is quite impossible to write about Mauritius without mentioning it. So the name came naturally, in fact, I think it’s safe to say that Sugar Cane chose its own name.
